Don Sharp's remake, the third cinematic adaptation of John Buchan's spy thriller, places the action back in its original setting, just prior to the Great War. Richard Hannay, a mining engineer, inadvertently stumbles upon an international espionage plot, and must flee for his life. He's doggedly pursued by both the police and enemy agents, from the start of his ordeal in London, all the way up to the Scottish Highlands and then back down again to the movie's precarious climax back in the capital.
